One Seven Five Ultimate Co. was founded in 2001 by Anthony David Adams. While captaining the Edinboro University team Anthony’s best friend Corey had just recovered from cancer and was bankrupt by medical bills. Wanting his best friend to join him and inspired by the Phish Lot T-shirts that always loved while on tour, he created the Flick & Hammer design using bootleg Adobe software, maxed out a student VISA card, and loaded up his Daewoo with a few hundred shirts. Corey (not a member of the team) sold the the designs on the sideline while Edinboro played.
The shirts were a hit and soon 175g.com was set up and designs were expanded. Anthony graduated Edinboro in 2003 and left for Madison, WI.
While in Madison Anthony befriended 175 customer Elliott Bisnow and began mentoring him in business and lifestyle design. The duo shared a number of crazy projects together and eventually went on to co-host the first Summit Series event for entrepreneurs (which just acquired Powder Mountain in Utah).
In 2005 Nigerian Rebels placed fradualent orders using stolen credit cards to 175g.com resulting in thousands of dollars of losses that froze production and eventually led to 175g shutting down.
Anthony graduates Madison and after helping his girlfriend build the premier women’s clothing boutique in the city takes over as Executive Director of the largest state student association in the country (120,000 members), invent and patent CreditCovers: skins for credit cards and build a company around them, create an activist education blog named Top 25 in the World by TIME Magazine.
Anthony continues to play Ultimate in New York City, Palo Alto, CA and Erie, PA and in December of 2014 175g.com is official relaunched with a selection of new and throwback designs and new team in place to reclaim the thrown as the premier Ultimate culture company.
A portion of all proceeds continue to be re-invested in projects to combat cancer. CryoCures.com is one such portfolio project.
